“At this moment Vladivostok’s emergency service has began the rescue operation at the bay of Fyodorov.

“Emergency service staff have already come to the area of the accident with an air boat,’’ the news report said in a release.

Report says the winter season often sees many locals taking to the ice for fishing, with reports of deaths from such activities every year.
